Each section is packed with information, activities and personal stories which bring lessons to life. Links to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals are a special feature, showing how Open Arms contributes to each of the 17 goals. Using this resource to introduce a different point of view
and inspire action is a great way to build global citizenship values.
With learning materials aimed at KS2, activities can be simplified or extended for higher and lower levels. Here are some of the lesson ideas included:
- Geography - assess resources, contrast daily issues for people in Malawi; investigate conservation and tourism potential.
- Communication and empathy skills - write diary entries based on Isaac's story and pictures; conduct an interview with our nurse in charge.
We are inviting teachers to use the activities in class, or create
their own lesson plans with the information, and join in with fundraising to
give children in Malawi a good start to school.
Watch our film below to see what happens when we do our part.

Back to School
Do you know a class
that can discover Malawi and be inspired to help?
We all understand
the value of nursery schools, so Open Arms wants to make these available to 450
children this year. The good meals and early learning given there are a simple
way to change a child’s outlook for life. With only 26% of children in Malawi
completing primary school, every child we can reach is important.
Can you invite a school to join in? When everyone does a bit
it’s amazing what we can achieve!
